QH-September 16, 2017     (Thomas Brooks, “The Crown and Glory of Christianity, or, HOLINESS, the Only Way to Happiness”, 1662)   The Scripture is God’s love-letter to men. Here the lamb may wade—and here the elephant may swim! The blessed Scriptures are of infinite worth and value! Here you may find…a remedy for every…

Sat-September 16, 2017     By Henry M. Morris, Ph.D., Evidence for Creation   “Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty” (Job 5:17).

All is transparent and harmonious to His eye!

CH-September 15, 2017    By Octavius Winslow (from “My Times in God’s Hand!”)   We live in a world of mysteries! They… meet our eye, awaken our inquiry, and baffle our investigation at every step. Nature is a vast arcade of mysteries. Science is a mystery. Truth is a mystery. Religion is a mystery. Our…

In that time before all time!

CH-September 14, 2017     By Charles Spurgeon (1864)   Meditate, dear friends, upon the whole range of God’s works in Creation and Providence.

CH-September 12 – September 13, 2017     By Mike Fernandez   You know how sometimes you go online at the end of the month to check your balance and then find yourself asking (sometimes out loud), “Where does all the money go?” Well, it didn’t just disappear. You spent it somewhere. Like that $150…

Sin is shut out – and they are shut in!

CH-September 12, 2017     By Charles Spurgeon   They weep no more — because they all are perfectly sanctified! No “evil heart of unbelief” prompts them to depart from the living God. They are without fault before His throne, and are fully conformed to His image! Well may they cease to mourn — who…

Never Forget

September 11, 2017 It was a regular Tuesday morning. I was in eighth grade. My mom had the radio tuned to her favorite news station while we got ready for the day. All of a sudden, she zoomed down the hallway and turned on the TV. TV? In the morning? It wasn’t a usual occurrence…
